    I kept reading this article hoping to hear about lower vunerabilites associated with Mac OS X, but no, just the typical patch crap for windows.
    I thought they might have the Intel CEO's comment about getting a Mac.

    Here is the summation

    Actually the suggestions he made were pretty sensible even if you own a mac. Regardless of your OS you should keep your patches up to date, secure your wireless set up and so on. Just because Mac OS X hasn't had a virus doesn't mean it can't or won't.

    Computer security isn't just about viruses and worms et al. For example a phishing website doesn't care what OS you're using and the guy that uses your unsecurred Airport base station to share tonnes of kiddie porn doesn't care either.
